Body and spirit are two different elements. The body is the grounded hearth in which the flame may sit.

The body must be soothed into a slow release of tension so that the two, body and spirit, can co-exist: not entangled, but separate, in relationship to one another.  Two paralell planes in space: two strands of the DNA which coil around each other, but do not touch.  The spirit rises ever-higher into a shape-shifting body all it’s own which can be trained for maximum expression of the individual.  The two components, body and spirit, negotiate their expression.  The two may work in tandem, pushing and pulling, navigating around, through and for one another in space.
